Four of the 49ers’ new picks come as a result of the NFL’s formula that awards picks to teams that have a net loss in free agents. The other three selections are a result of the league’s initiative awarding selections to the former employer club of a minority employee who has been hired by another club as its head coach or primary football manager. Jets head coach Robert Saleh, Commanders General Manager Martin Mayhew, Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel, Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans and Titans General Manager Ran Carthon have left the Niners in the past three years.
All three of those 49ers picks are third rounders. The Browns and Chiefs also received third-round picks via that route, and the Rams joined the 49ers in picking up four overall picks due to their free agent losses.
